A giant toy duck was waddling on top of the fourth plinth when I arrived in Trafalgar Square mid-morning.
I half-expected him to barnstorm out in riding boots and harangue us, Mussolini-style, underlit from a plinth.
The walls are divided by many vertical lines of pilasters which rise from the plinth to the eaves-cornice.
Mrs. plinth enquired, still distrustful of Mrs. Roby's thoroughness.
Moreover, the contrast between the plinth and the white wall above it must have had a certain decorative effect.
Mrs. plinth looked disapproving, and Mrs. Ballinger visibly wavered.
The plinth supported a stone shaft fifteen feet in height, which touched the lower branches of the trees.
"I always deprecate anything like a scandal—" Mrs. plinth continued.
The monument on the plinth under the next arch is also beyond identification.
Just then the mother of the Gracchi came to the edge of the plinth to open the meeting.
